Condition(s) targeted: Primary Immune Deficiency

Intervention: Immune Globulin Subcutaneous (Human) (SCIG) (Biological)

Phase: Phase 3

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: CSL Behring

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Yoriyuki Shiga, Study Director, Affiliation: CSL Behring K.K.


The objective of this study is to assess the efficacy, safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of a subcutaneous immune globulin (SCIG; IgPro20) in subjects with primary immunodeficiency (PID). In addition, the study will assess the health-related quality of life and pharmacoeconomic aspects related to treatment with IgPro20.

- Ongoing or history of concomitant malignancies of lymphoid cells such as lymphocytic

leukemia, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and immunodeficiency with thymoma

- Allergic or other severe reactions to immunoglobulins or other blood products

recorded in the past 3 months or at the time of screening

- Pregnancy or nursing mother

- A positive result at screening on any of the following viral markers: human

immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1), HIV-2, hepatitis C virus, or hepatitis B virus

- Participation in a study with other investigational product during this study and
